    Abstract

    Non-bacterial thrombotic endocarditis is caused by a hypercoagulable state that is sometimes related to malignancy and this type of endocarditis associated with benign tumors has not yet been reported. In this study we report the first case of non-bacterial thrombotic endocarditis caused by adenomyosis, which is a benign gynecological condition.
